Cadets: Last Call For Cash Calendars

All calendars, slips, and collected cash need to be returned this Wednesday, October 24 at Uniform Supply Night at the Boys and Girls Club: 9425-109A Ave.  There is no regular training at the school this week, so please note the change of venue. Brian will be at the venue starting at 18:00 until at least 19:00. 

Calendars that are not turned in will cost the squadron money. Cadets may be responsible to sell any calendars not returned as the squadron will have to pay for them, so please ensure things are turned in on Wednesday.

Please note: Any unsold calendars need to be turned in on Wednesday as well so they can be returned to Calgary at this weekend's AGM.
